About Back on My Feet: Founded by AnneMahlum in 2007, Back on My Feet is a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. The organization does not provide food nor shelter, but instead provides a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. Back on My Feet's approach focuses on the very profound and innate desire for all of us - regardless of age, race, socio-economic status - to feel recognized, appreciated, valued and important. Through dedication and hard work, Members earn the opportunity to create a new road for themselves by advancing to the "Next Steps" phase of the program where they gain access to educational, job training, and employment opportunities, as well as financial aid. In short Back on My Feet focuses on changing people's lives by changing the way they see themselves.

About The Giving Keys: Caitlin Crosby, the founder
et this sweet homeless couple (Cera and Rob) on Hollywood Blvd who have had a really tough life. After falling in love with their hearts, and how hard they're working to try and change their lives, I had an "Ah-Ha moment." I realized they were the missing link to The Giving Keys. So I asked them to be my business partners. After all, the whole concept is PAYING IT FORWARD.
Proceeds go to keeping Cera & Rob off the streets and in transitional homes/counceling/school/shelter & once we complete that goal, we will use the extra money to donate to the shelters & transitional homes that were most effective in supporting Cera & Rob.
